MANILA, Philippines – Three months after it was launched, the memoir of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile has become one of the bestselling books of 2012.

The much talked about “Juan Ponce Enrile: A Memoir” has sold over 10,000 copies since it was released last September, with the book now on its third reprint, according to National Book Store (NBS).

“The JPE memoir is definitely one of the bestselling books of 2012 and easily the biggest selling biography or memoir. The book sold very quickly and by the time the second reprint came, we were just fulfilling the long reservation list we had. Thankfully, we finally have it back in stock for the holidays,” NBS marketing director Miguel Ramos said of the book published by ABS-CBN Publishing.

“Juan Ponce Enrile: A Memoir” reveals little known details of Enrile’s life, as well as his perspective during key moments in Philippine history. It also narrates his relationship with the late Presidents Ferdinand Marcos and Corazon Aquino, as well as other prominent figures in business and politics.

The 772-page hard cover edition is currently sold at NBS and Fully Booked outlets nationwide, while e-books are available on the Amazon Kindle Store and Apple’s iBookstore.
